so, bad news.

after opening a jira issue (for the versioned release package), a sales representative from the parent company of FreeSWITCH, Signalwire, contacted me with the following email reproduced in full:

Hi Brent,

My name is Ryan over here at FS. I'm reaching out because I was notified of the JIRA you sent in. As you know there is the open source version 1.6 of FS available yet there isn't much support available any longer. That is due to the recent change to commercialize the newest version so we can better provide support. In order to help you and your company please see the below.

We have developed an enterprise release of FS that pre-dates the open source release (on average 18-24mo) and contains commercial-only solutions. Our effort over the last 12 years to build FS has left us with an amazing base platform on which we are currently building a more professional public-facing offering in both a localized and cloud-hosted version.

The FSA program gives you access to this enterprise branch of FS and is the only version supported by the core developers. We continue to offer professional services as part of the FSA program and have been upgrading our current customers to the FSA subscription.

As a commercial customer you will have your own dedicated HipChat channel for your resources to interface with ours, an account manager and technical contact, and we are available 24x7 excluding US holidays. We have really made a big effort in dedicating our resources to our commercial customers now. The open source community and release will still exist but will only receive security updates, all patches and features will be reserved for the enterprise version.

The only additional information I would like to provide is around pricing and terms, we have done away with all hourly or project based support. All terms are either 12, 24 or 36 months and pricing carries a base fee of $5,000 per month. I would love to learn more about your deployment and can put together an official quote if its of interest.

Please let me know any additional questions, Id be happy to speak with you as well.

Thanks

Ryan

this has been confirmed via a direct freeswitch contact address.

so it looks like not only will the above bug not be fixed any time soon, if ever, but it also means that they are closing shop on the opensource version.

i recommend either finding an alternative solution or forking the freeswitch project. if someone does fork it, please let me know and i would be happy to maintain an AUR package for it if desired.

@mlody_salceson-

no problem! it's my pleasure. :)

@sanerb-

package builds cleanly and runs fine on my machine, thanks for fast response!

sanerb commented on 2017-07-23 09:12

@mlody_salceson-

yeah, true- pushed but untested, let me know if it broke'd

mlody_salceson commented on 2017-07-23 08:36

Hello, I believe the necessary fixes are in the repository now and the package builds fine without recent code modifications. The new openssl can be also used.

heads up to all-

this package now builds cleanly. there's some very small issues remaining, but Mike Jerrit at upstream (Freeswitch) was a HUGE help and you should offer to buy him a beer.

sysfu commented on 2016-06-20 21:09

Ran latest build error https://bpaste.net/show/143c1f7a0c91 by Freeswitch dev.

He thinks it looks like a compiler or assembler bug, suggested downgrading binutils or gcc and see if that resolves.

sanerb commented on 2015-09-28 05:08

still working on this. libyuv-git is packaged and builds, but still is not detected properly at build-time of mod_fsv. pretty sure it's because it's not building the .so, which e.g. the centos package includes.

or maybe it just wants the debug build, but that didn't seem quite likely by looking at the SPEC file for the epel7 RPM.

regardless, i need python2-gyp_chromium packaged. friend of mine should be doing that shortly. once it's in AUR, I'll see what i can do about the libyuv being detected. if building the .so doesn't fix it, then i'll have to open a bug- because the headers are installed just fine via libyuv-git, but the build script still doesn't seem to find them.

Tried building using just makepkg, still seeing the same issue with the conf dir. Here's the incorrect output of the configure script: http://pastebin.com/d8p39aJj Get the same error that I put in the first paste.
